I am so very thankful that God blessed me with Shawn Reeves. God has a wonderful plan and it is perfect. He placed Shawn in my life at the perfect time. God gave Shawn the heart that could go through the worst of times with me and he supported me, loved me unselfishly, he gave me a shoulder to cry on. He was there to hold me when I could not bear it anymore. He is my rock, and today I honor him for all of his accomplishments during times that were somedays very hard. On Friday October 22, 2010 Shawn completed all of his Clinical hours to now sit for his Acute Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner License and his Primary Pediatric Nurse Practitioner License. You have no idea how honored I am to be his wife. Through the past 6 years Shawn has worked full time and gone to school full time to supporting our family. He has completed his Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and his Masters of Science in Nursing from Lubbock Christian University. He also has a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife and Fishery from Texas A & M University. He held his Teaching Certificate and taught and was a Coach at Seminole TX, before he decided to move back to Lubbock and go to nursing school. In 2004 he completed his RN from Covenant School of Nursing (Covenant is where i got my RN as well). He is a very educated man.
Did I mention his school for his Nurse Practitioner was in Arlington, UT Arlington to be exact….and we are in Lubbock 🙂 During the times that he had to travel to class I was pregnant with Jillian, then in the hospital pregnant with Jillian for 10 weeks or 72 days whatever sounds better 🙂 Then he was still traveling to Arlington when we had a newborn in NICU and once we brought her home. I was not too excited the first time he had to go back and I had two 2 year olds and a preemie newborn on an apnea monitor at home with out him there.
All I can say now is Whew….we made it!! Yes he still has to study and take his boards, but I have all faith in him.
I just had to share with everyone what an amazing husband I have, I am so very proud.
On Friday evening I made Shawn stop and let me take a few pictures of him to make the day he finished clinicals 🙂 All of these were taken with Ella yelling at him from the car to SMILE DADDY!!! and Madelyn crying because she wanted to get out. I think we were out of the car about 5 minutes or less due to Madelyn’s meltdown!!!
Shawn Reeves…..I LOVE you with all that I have!!!!
